And a few benefits, too. I’ve had long hair for years, and back when 
I was a full time foundry tech, and when I was a ceramics studio tech
firing the big gas kilns, I had hair down almost to my knees. Almost 
nobody knew that, because it was always fastened back securely and 
covered. I have (I admit it) lost some eyebrows over the years, but not 
my hair. 

Short-ish hair can escape a bandanna, and bangs are tough to restrain 
adequately. Plain long hair stays put when you fasten it right. It stays 
tight to the head even if curly, and stays put under a ‘do-rag’. It’s the 
people with medium-length hair that haven’t really thought it through 
when they first encounter power tools or fire. 

Not that there aren’t some long-haired idiots out there, too. I keep 
hair clips (embarrassing, tacky ones from the dollar store) at school 
for any student who forgets. The "Clips of Shame!”  ;)
